Small Town. Big Secret. America�s top scientists hammer away the future

Eureka is a Science-fiction comedy about the best minds in the U.S. tucked away in a remote town where they build futuristic inventions for the government.

Eureka is a Science-fiction comedy about the best minds in the U.S. tucked away in a remote town where they build futuristic inventions for the government.

With the help of Albert Einstein and other trusted advisors, President Harry S. Truman commissioned a top-secret residential development in a remote area of the Pacific Northwest, one that would serve to protect and nurture America's most valuable intellectual resources and allow super-geniuses to work on the next era of scientific achievements and live in an environment conducive to there work.

The best architects and planners were commissioned to design a welcoming place for these superlative geniuses to reside, an area that would offer the best education for their children, the best healthcare, the best amenities and quality of life. A community was created to rival the most idyllic of America's small towns� with one major difference: this town would never appear on any maps. At least, none that haven't been classified "eyes only" by the Pentagon.

Thus, the town of Eureka was born. But for all its familiar small-town trappings, things in this secret hamlet are anything but ordinary. The stereotype of the absent-minded professor exists for a reason, and most of the quantum leaps in science and technology during the past 50 years were produced by Eureka's elite researchers. Unfortunately, scientific exploration is rarely what one expects, and years of experiments gone awry have yielded some peculiar by-products.

With the population's unique talents, troubled psyches and limitless resources, these small-town concerns have a way of becoming big-time problems. It is at that intersection, where human frailty and super-science collide, that Eureka began�

The cast for Eureka includes: Colin Ferguson as Sherrif Jack Carter, a former U.S. Marshal who reluctantly becomes Sherrif of Eureka, Salli Richardson-Whitfield as Dr. Allison Blake - a Department of Defense agent who acts as the liaison between Eureka and the Federal Government. Jamie Ray Newman as Dr. Tess Fontana - a brilliant engineer and astrophysicist who sees things differently than those around her. Jordan Hinson as Zoe Carter - Jack's rebellious teenage daughter.
